Samsung Galaxy S6 to be 6.91 mm thin, new leaked schematic suggests

Looks like Samsung is having a hard time this year keeping the design of the Galaxy S6 from getting leaked before its official unveiling. Yesterday, we reported about an alleged image of the metal housing of the Galaxy S6, and today have an image which shows informs us about the dimensions of the device. This leaked image, which shows the schematics of the device, suggests that the upcoming Galaxy S6 will be as thin as an Apple iPhone 6 (6.91 mm to be exact). We believe that the schematic is closer to reality, as the design as well as the placements of the ports, buttons, camera sensor, and the heart-rate monitor matches with that of the previously leaked metal housing and the leaked render of the device.

Smartphones are getting thinner every passing year, without taking a hit on the performance or the battery life, and we think that Samsung would like to show to the world that it can beat every other manufacturer out there when it comes to its technological prowess. If the schematic turns out to be true, Samsung would have beat Apple when it comes to fitting a much larger battery (somewhere around 3,000 mAh by our guesstimate) than the iPhone 6 in the Galaxy S6.

But where is the slot for SD-card ?
I can’t believe Samsung would go to the boom of “put it all in the cloud”…

Don’t worry guys,Samsung is not so stupid. They will design something way better.

It looks like Galaxy S5 to me. The differences are the metal frame, the position of the speaker and the position of the heart rate sensor. And now the sensors on the top are at the left side and there is an external slot for the Sim Card. The protuberant camera and home button are the same.

I’m pretty sure the back will be made out of glass not aluminum which will make it look like a mix of iphone 6 and Z3

We don’t need any thinner phones we need better battery life, I will gladly take a phone that is a couple of mm thicker if it meant a battery that will last me a few more hours.

If this is the design it’s no surprise the Snapdragon 810 had heat issues, there is no room for a decent cooling solution in something so thin, It will be interesting to see if Samsung can get this phone running at max speed without the heat causing the SoC to throttle.

There is a very good reason Qualcomm’s chips run hot right now and Samsung’s Exynos does not. Exynos is using the ARM’s complete string of HSA (Heterogeneous Computing Platform) API’s, framework, tools, etc since joining the HSA Foundation years ago. With Heterogeneous Computing system wide, Samsung’s Exynos Chips are now set to be installed in ARM HPC Cluster Super Computers. First ever in EU’s MontBlanc Project. They’ve been testing them since Exynos was first launched.

The reality is that Exynos chips for that reason alone are far more energy efficient and this is why Samsung’s Exynos Chips are already going into Jets, cars and even military equipment. You do realize that through Samsung Techwin, they are now on the forefront of Heterogeneous Computing Efficiency? Qualcomm on the other hand tried and failed to make their own 64bit ARM platform chips, designed to use these HSA features.

Qualcomm’s original design was even hotter, because they were not using ARM’s big/LITTLE design methodolgy. So when they found their chip design failing, they immediately licensed ARM’s big/LITTLE design and joined the HSA with AMD, Imagination, Samsung, etc. But unlike Samsung, Qualcomm is just getting into making their own devices. Like smartwatches, etc. It’s taken a long time for Qualcomm to finally get Heterogeneous HSA features into their chips.

Even though, Qualcomm now has overheating issues solved, Samsung has their first LTE radios integrated into Exynos chips! …..and so they don’t need Qualcomm any more!!!

There are many great innovations in this phone you obviously don’t know about. First off is the fact that Samsung has been working together with BMW and Tesla to develop better battery technology. Galaxy S6 will have the first Ultra High Density Lithium Polymer batteries in smartphone. Naturally it’s Samsung SDI Division who’s doing all the research on battery technology. #1 OEM battery supplier on the planet. They are working on Graphene Batteries for the future too.

But Lithium Polymer has some huge benefits over the cheaper Lithium Ion like in Apple’s iphones and watch. Like compared to Apple watch with only a few hours of battery life on a crippled, locked in device, Samsung’s Gear S can run for up to 2 full days without a recharge. Then using it’s spare battery in the Gear charger we Gear S users can run our smartphone watch for up to 4 days without plugging into a wall. These new Lithium Polymer Batteries are latest…. highest density for longer life. While also being the ultimate in SAFETY!!!

No Explosions or Fires from using Lithium Polymer batteries. They can be made near any shape, size or even flexible. Next Gear will have Samsung’s latest Wristband batteries. How is Apple going to compete with that, being smaller dinky watches? ahaha…. Let alone any of their other competition!

GS6 does not use Snapdragon 810. And a huge bezel from top and bottom are caused of thin body. So, don’t worry about battery.SS designer know what they do with their flagship.

Another solid smartphone from Samsung.

By the way, is the screen-size between 5.0″ – 5.2″?

zpeedster

If my calculations r correct nd based on the schematics its 5.07 inches, sp yes to answer ur q:n :)

I’m sry gtone339 for miss calculating by 0,45 inches :) nd I guess according to the professor heads here mathematically it’s a no to ur million dollar question of 5.0″-5.2″. In my world though both r very close to the 5″ which brings a question, why would they lower from 5.1″ (s5) to 4.93″ (s6)? Correct me again if I’m wrong but if they still went with the 2k display wich was so great according to some on the s5 why didn’t they put that same screen size Amoled in the s6? :/

According to Pythagoras: x²=(10,732cm)²+(6,436cm)² with x being the diagonal. x=12,514cm and 1 inch=2,54cm so i got a screen size of 4,93″. Who is wrong? :D

Why do people complain about the home button. For me, it`s so indispensable that I might migrate to iphone if Samsung stops having it. It is so useful. Do you complainers not use the home button? Besides the phone is so nicely designed, blending the note 4, htc m8 and the sorta iphone 6 curves on some parts.

In my opinion ,as long as the home button still exists ;the design won’t change and they will have only the materials to play with and change.

And i don’t think they are copying anyone because if you compare all manufacturers you have to suit everyone.

Design sucks and their copying iphone 6…Now I know why its called project zero because it amounts to nothing! But can’t jump to conclusions until you see it too believe it.

Fool.. you just gave yourself away. You’re a CrAppleholic iTroll and you think it’s your duty to diss on all of CrApple’s competition. You do know that Project Zero is Google’s Project… right? lol…. Dude you’ve never used an Android phone, much less a Samsung Galaxy device. Never mind the fact that Apple is the BIGGEST COPYIST IN HISTORY!!! ….their first hyst was the best though. When they ripped off Xerox for both the mouse and GUI!!! ;-P

Design is awesome and in case you don’t realize it, if you think the design is stolen from CrApple, you’re saying CrApple is CrAppy at designing phones for you retarded deluded iDiots!!! :D

World is getting really F***** tired of freaks like you Applewellian controlled iDiots go and on about every other company Copying CrApple. What hell is with that? Since CrApple just got finished coming from behind and they only got caught up on size. This phones is using far better technology than Apple’s totally outsourced design and fabrication. No factories of their own and they barely spend enough on R&D to beat out the bottom third of the Top 100 corporations. On CAPEX Spending? …..they don’t own anything to upgrade and only invest in other’s CAPEX like GT Advanced and Foxconn. How is that considered valid CAPEX spending? Creative use of numbers on the books doesn’t mean they operate even close to a full end to end manufacturer.

Your dearly beloved CrApple is the biggest thief on the Planet. They’ve always been great at ripping their biggest competitors off. Because they didn’t have the money to beat out Xerox PARKE Labs stealing from them. Now they rip off all competitors today, without even feeling guilty about it and all you morons act like CrApple Invented EVERYTHING….. Before the Dawn of Time!

Tell you what fool…. if Samsung did go all out to copy CrApple, Good for them and that makes me happy! lol… mwahaha… Let’s see CrApple do something about it. Go ahead brag about how CrApple is going to sue Samsung again. And how they’ll again not ever give CrApple any money! hehe… They’ll get another bogus jury award, that Samsung will NEVER PAY. Just like the first two! :DDD
